The Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (Wheeled), abbreviated to CVR(W) was a line of vehicles to replace the Ferret Armoured Car in British Army service.

Two variants were planned:

Vixen was developed but was cancelled in the Mason defence review of 1974-75, and never reached service. Fox was deployed with both Regular Army and Territorial Army units but gathered a poor image due to some accidents where the vehicle tipped over - probably due to a combination of the high centre of gravity and poor driving.
